John Vernon and his wife Janet were married in December 1985 while attending School of the Ozarks in Branson, MO. They completed their bachelor degrees in May 1987. Upon graduation, they moved to Little Rock, AR where John worked as a computer programmer and Janet worked as a high school math teacher. Upon the birth of their oldest daughter, Jessica, in 1990, Janet returned to the home as her primary work. In 1993 the family moved to Ft. Worth, TX while John attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. That same year Brittany came along. She was followed by their youngest, Amanda, in 1995 just before the family moved to Central Asia where they spent almost fourteen years coordinating church planting strategies among Muslim peoples.

They returned to the United States in January 2008 and served at Miner Baptist Church as their associate pastor of family and children ministries until March 2013, when they began serving as the Director of Missions for the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association.

Since coming to the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association, John has received training as a consultant for the Transformational Church Assessment Tool and as a Transitional Pastor.   As a former trainer of Strategy Coordinators with the imb, John also is available for church-based missions training that can be done in a half day or in 4, 1 hour modules over a period of weeks or months.

He serves with Roger Graham  as part of a shared leadership agreement between  the Charleston Baptist Association and the Cape Girardeau Baptist Association.
